One Flew Over The Chicken's Nest

I've always loved animals. Over my lifetime, I've had every pet I could have ever wanted.  Besides the typical dogs and cats, I've had a horse, goats, squirrels, rabbits, ducks, a skunk (yes, you read that right), snakes (actually my brother's), hamsters, and I even got to baby sit bird sit two orphaned hawks until the Fish and Game Department could send someone after them.

It just seems right to add chickens to the mix. Chickens are excellent foragers and not only do they help keep bugs out of your yard, they also give you breakfast! Now, how many animals do that?

My grandfather had this coop moved to the property years ago (when my dad was a small boy - that was a long time ago!). It is sill in fair shape. It has lots of wear, but the chickens don't seem to mind. We are free-ranging them so we can have some of the best eggs around.
